One Sunday, late in the afternoon,
found Daylight across the bay in the
Piedmont hills of Oakland. As usual,
he was in a big motor car, though not
his own, the guest of Swiftwater Bill
Luck s own darling, who had come
down to spend the clean-up of the sev
enth fortune wrung from the frozen
Arctic gravel. It was a merry party,
end they had made a merry day of It,
circling the bay from San Francisco
around by San Jose and up to Oak
land, having been thrice arrested for
speeding, the third time, however, on
the Haywards stretch, running away
with their captor. Fearing that a tele
phone message to arrest them had
been flashed ahead, they had turned
Into the back-road through the hills,
and now, rushing in upon Oakland by
a new route, were boisterously dis-
cussing what disposition they should
make of the constable.
"We'll come out at Blair Park In
ten minutes," one of the men an-
nounced. "Look here, Swiftwater,
there's a cross-road right ahead, with
lots of gates, hut it'll take us back-
country Into Berkeley. Then we can
come back into Oakland from the oth-
er side, sneak across on the ferry,
and send the machine back around
tonight with the chauffeur."
But Swiftwater Bill failed to see
why he should not go into Oakland
by way of Blair Park, and so decided.
The next moment, flying around a
bend, the back-road they were not
going to take appeared. Inside the
gate, leaning out from her saddle and
Just closing it. was a young woman on
a chestnut sorrel. With his first
glimpse, Daylight felt there was some-
thing strangely familiar about her.
The next moment, straightening up in
the saddle with a movement he could
not fall to Identify, she put the horse
Into a gallop, riding away with her
back toward them. It was Dede Ma-
son—he remembered what Morrison
had told him about her keeping a rid
Ing horse, and he was glad she had
not seen him in this riotous company.
Intervening trees at that moment
shut her from view, and Swiftwater
Bill plunged into the prol.lem of dis-
posing of their constable, while Day-
light, leaning back with closed eyes,
was still seeing Dede Masou gallop off
down the country road.
On Monday morning, coning In tor
dictation, he looked at her with new
Interest, though he gave no sign of
It; and the stereotyped business
passed off In the stereotyped way. But
the following Sunday found him on a
horse himself, across the bay and rid-
ing through the Piedmont hills. He
made a long day of it, but no glimpse
did he catch of Dede Mason, though
he even took the back road of many
gates and rode on Into Berkeley. It
had been a fruitless day, so far as she
was concerned; and yet not entirely
fruitless, for he had enjoyed the open
air and the horse under him tj such
purpose that, on Monday, his instruc-
tions were out to the dealers to look
for the best chestnut sorrel that
money could buy. At odd times during
the week he examined numbers of
chestnut sorrels, tried several and was
unsatisfied. It was not till Saturday
that he came upon Bob. Daylight
kpew him for what he wanted the mo-
ment he laid eyes on him. A large
horse for a riding animal, he was none
too large for a big man like Daylight,
in splendid condition, Bob's coat In
the sunlight was a flame of fire, his
arched neck a jewelled conflagration.
Daylight examined the mane and
found It finer than any horse's hair
he had ever seen. Also, Its color was
unusual in that It was almost auburn.
While he ran his fingers through It,
Bob turned his head and playfully
nuzzled Daylight's shoulder.
"Saddle him up, and I'll try him,"
he told the dealer. "I wonder If he's
mind. Give me a good Mexican and a
curb bit—not too severe, seeing as he
likes to rear."
Daylight superintended the prepara-
tions, adjusting the curb strap and
the stirrup length, and doing the
cinching. He shook his head at the
martingale, but yielded to the dealer's
advice to allow it to go on. And Bob,
beyond spirited restlessness and a
few playful attempts, gave no trouble.
Nor ln the hour's riding that followed,
save for some permissible curveting
and prancing, did he misbehave. Day-
light was delighted; the purchase was
Immediately made; and Bob, with rid-
ing gear and personal equipment, was
dispatched across the bay forthwith
to take up his quarters in the stables
of the Oakland Riding Academy.
The next day being Sunday, Day-
light was away early, crossing on the
ferry and taking with him Wolf, the
leader of his sled team, the one dog
which he had selected to bring with
him when he left Alaska. Quest as he
would through the Piedmont hills and
along the many-gated back-road to
Berkeley, Daylight saw nothing of
Dede Mason and her chestnut sorrel.
But he had little time for disappoint-
ment, for his own chestnut kept him
busy. At the end of half an hour
of goodness Daylight, lured into confi
dence, was riding along at a walk
and rolling a cigarette, with slack
knees and relaxed seat, the reins lying
on the animal's neck. Bob whirled
abruptly and with lightning swiftness,
pivoting on his hind legs, his fore legs
Just lifted clear of the ground. Day
light kept his seat, but, beyond a fu
tile rein across the neck, did nothing
to prevent the evolution.
"Well, Bob," he addressed the an!
mal, at the same time wiping the
sweat from his own eyes, "I'm free to
confess that you're sure the blamed
est all-fired quickest creature 1 ever
saw. I guess the way to fix you Is to
keep the spur Just a-touching—ah!
For, the moment the spur touched
him, his left hind leg had reached for
ward ln a kick that struck the stir-
rup a smart blow. Several times, out
of curiosity, Daylight attempted the
spur, and each time Bob's hoof landed
the stirrup. Then Daylight, following
the horse's example of the unexpected
suddenly drove both spurs Into him
and reached him underneath with the
You ain't never had a real licking
before," he muttered, as Bob, thus
rudely jerked out of the circle of his
own Impish mental processes, shot
Half a dozen times spurs and quirt
bit into him, and then Daylight settled
down to enjoy the magnificent gallop.
No longer punished, at the end of a
half mile Bob eased down Into a fast
canter. Wolf, toiling the rear, was
catching up, and everything was going
nicely. And when, at last, Daylight
decided that the horse had had
enough, he turned him around abrupt-
ly and put him into a gentle canter
on the forward track. After a time,
he reined In to a stop to see If he
were breathing painfully. Standing
for a minute, Bob turned his head and
nuzzled his rider's stirrup ln a
roguish, impatient way, as much as to
intimate that it was time they were
"Well, I'll be plumb gosh darned!"
was Daylight's comment. "No ill-will,
no grudge, no nothing—and after that
lambasting! You're sure a hummer,
He had taken a liking to the animal,
and repented not of his bargain. He
realized that Bob was not vicious nor
mean, the trouble being that he was
bursting with high spirits and was en-
dowed with more than the average
horse's Intelligence. It was the spirits
and the Intelligence, combined with
inordinate roguishness, that made him
w'hat he was. What was required to
control him was a strong hand, with
tempered sternness and yet with the
requisite touch of brutal dominance.
Throughout the week Daylight found
himself almost as much Interested in
Bob as In Dede; and, not being in the
thick of any big deals, he was prob-
ably more interested in both of them
than In the business game. Bob's
trick of whirling was of special mo-
ment to him. How to overcome it—
that wag the thing. Suppose he did
meet with Dede out in the hills; and
suppose by some lucky stroke of fate,
he should manage to be riding along-
side of her; then that whirl of Bob's
would be most disconcerting and em-
barrassing. He was hot particularly
anxious for her to see him thrown for-
ward on Bob's neck. On the other
hand, suddenly to leave her and go
dashing down the back-track, plying
quirt and spurs, wouldn't do, either.
What was wanted was a method
wherewith to prevent that lightning
whirl. He must stop the animal be-
fore It got around. The reins would
not do this. Neither would the spurs.
Remained the quirt. But how to ac-
complish it? Bob always whirled to
the right. Very well. He would
double the quirt ln his hand, and, the

would rap Bob on the nose. The horse
didn't live, after it once learned the
lesson, that would whirl in the face
of the doubled quirt.
More keenly than ever, during that
week In the office, did Daylight realize
that he had no social, nor even human
contacts with Dede. The situation was
such that he could not ask her the
simple question whether or not she
was going riding next Sunday. Thus
he found another card In the hand
the mad god had dealt him. How Im-
portant that card was to become he
did not dream, yet he decided that It
was a pretty good card.
Sunday came, and Bob, out ln the
Piedmont hills, behaved like an angel.
His goodness at times was of the
spirited, prancing order, but other-
wise he was a lamb. But no Dede did
Daylight encounter. He vainly circled
about among the hill roads, and ln
the afternoon took the steep grade
over the divide of the second range
and dropped into Maraga Valley. Just
after passing the foot of the descent,
he heard the hoof beats of a cantering
horse. It was from ahead and coming
toward him. What Jf it were Dede?
He turned Bob around and started to
return at a walk. The canter came
nearer, but he faced straight ahead
ntll he heard the horse behind check
to a walk. Then he glanced over his
shoulder. It was Dede The recogni-
tion was quick, and, with her, accom-
panied by surprise. What more
natural thing than that, partly turn-
ing his horse, he should wait till she
caught up with him; and that, when
abreast, they should continue abreast
on up the grade? He could have
sighed with relief. The thing
was accomplished, and so easily.
Greetings had been exchanged; here
they were side by side and going In
the same direction with miles and
miles ahead of them.
He noted that her eye was first for
the horse and next for him.
"Oh, what a beauty!" she had cried
at sight of Bob. From the shining
light in her eyes, and the face filled
with delight, he would scarcely have
believed that It belonged to the young
woman he had known In the office,
the young woman with the controlled]
subdued office face.
I didn t know you rode," was one
of her first remarks. "I imagined

Thus, and to his great relief, they
launched on a topic of mutual infer-
sst. He told her about Bob's tricks,
and of the whirl and his scheme to
overcome it; and she agreed that
horses had to be handled with a cer-
tain rational severity, no matter how
much one loved them. There was
Mab, which she had had for eight
years, and which she had had to break
of stall-kicking. The process had been
painful for Mab, but It had cured her
"You've ridden a lot," Daylight
"I really can't remember the first
time I was on a horse," she told him.
And thereat she told him more of
her ranch life in the days before her
lather died. And Daylight was hugely
pleased with himself. They were get-
ting acquainted. The conversation
had not lagged ln the full half hour
they had been together. When she
talked, he listened and followed her,
and .vet all the while he was follow-
ing his own thoughts and Impressions
as well. It was a nervy thing
for her to do, this riding astride,
and he didn't know, after all,
whether he liked It or not. His
ideas of women were prone to be
old-fashioned; they were the ones he
had imbibed In the early day, frontier
life of his youth, when no woman was
seen on anything but a side-saddle.
He had grown up to the tacit fiction
that women on horseback were not bi-
peds. It came to him with a shock,
this sight of her so manlike ln her
saddle. But he had to confess that the
sight looked good to him Just the

To a majority of people the use of
canned milk seems an extravagant ex-
penditure, but when fresh milk is not
obtainable, as it is not In many places

milk is a wonderful boon, and the
number of dishes which may be pre-

Investment in a brickyard had
put the idea Into his head—an idea
that he decided was a good one, for it
enabled him to suggest that she ride
along with him to inspect the quarry.
So several hours he spent ln her
company, In which she was much the
same girl as before, natural, unaffect-
ed, light-hearted, smiling and laugh-
ing, a good fellow, talking horses with
unflagging enthusiasm, making friends
with the Qrusty-teinpered Wolf, and
expressing a desire to ride Bob, whom
she declared she was more In love with
than ever. Against his better judg- j

She nodded, while Bob pricked up
his ears to the knowledge that he had
a strange rider on his back. The
fun came quickly enough—too quickly
for Dede, who found herself against
Bob's neck as he pivoted around and
bolted the other way. Daylight followed
on her horse and watched. He saw
her check the animal quickly to a
standstill, and Immediately, with rein
across neck and a decisive prod of
the left spur, whirl him back the way
he had come and almost as swiftly.
"Get ready to give him the quirt on
the nose," Daylight called.
